Description of problem:
When I mount a sftp:// volume using Nautilus' connect to server, i am
asked for a password. Then, if I check the "save in keyring" checkbox,
it still asks for my password when I try to access the server from a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a sftp:// server using "connect to server" from Nautilus
2.Open the newly created "volume"
3.Anter the password
4.Check the "remember password using keyring" checkbox
7.Open the sftp:// volume again
Actual Results: Nautilus asks for the password again.
Expected Results: It should have kept the password in memory, and not
ask for it again.
I tested it using Fedora Core 2 test2
Yes, the sftp method doesn't support gnome-keyring atm.
2.8 supports this.
